details, textures, ...time is running!


Hi to all....this time I would like to talk about deadlines. I love weaving in projects I am enjoying. I take my time. I grab a cup of coffee...listen to great music....and just relax because I am just in front of my loom.
But, what happens when you receive in the mail a "Call for Entry".....and suddenly, you decide that precisely this piece you are working on just might be the good one to display????

Well, you see, this is just what happens to me almost all the time. I don't have a precise deadline to deliver this commissioned tapestry, and yet I would love to display it and show it before I deliver it.....So, I will just have to speed up and try to get to the deadline to enter the Juried Show. I am half way through, but between the painting classes, the kids, the house and of course all the things I am always involved in it will be a bit complicated.
I will let you know If this particular DEADLINE isn't a real DEAD-LINE..jaja.
Have a wonderful fibre week!

Updating my commission

Hi there!. It is already February and I know I have not been able to write in my blog lately, I can now show you the advances in thr project I am working on. I know my images are terrible, but I had a problem with my camera and I am using my son's. Sorry to put the images sideways, but since I am showing the project (which by the way was inspired in in a collage of a very good friend of mine and excellent visual Arts from Mexico).
I just love the visual intensity of the composition, and I love to mix many different materials and textures as well.
I will let you know the progress. It is quite large, but I am really trying to finish it by May....wish me luck!
good bye to all for now. I will give my back a rest....fiu!
